Question about Logitech Z-5300 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Popping & hardly any volume

First problem: when adjusting the volume, i would get a pop every click of the knob. it would get increasingly loud as the volume setting increased.

Second problem: speakers suddenly decreased in volume one day when I connected them to a laptop with an extension headphone cord. Since then, even at high volume setting, I get very little sound (but popping noise described in first problem is still very loud).

Third problem: static in two of the speakers.

I had the first problem and you can probably fix it by turning the volume knob all the way up and down about 20 times. it worked for me. supposedly the potentiometers in the z-5300 get dirty or worn out, somehow this might fix it. for the second problem maybe try plugging it into the laptop and unplugging it again seeing if it goes back to normal?maybe its a problem with the amp?

Amp pops randomly and gets worse with my remote bass knob hooked up any ideas ?

When you say that the amp "pops" are you referring to the sound that is coming out of the speakers?
This is most likely the speakers "bottoming out", i.e. moving as much as they can, and then slapping against the back of the speaker frame. Adding the remote bass knob (presumably increasing the signal to the amplifier) would make the problem a bit worse, which explains why the popping increases after you add the bass knob.

You can try decreasing the gain on your amplifier and running the system at a moderate volume. If there's no popping occurring, you can be reasonably sure that the subs/speakers are just being over-driven.
